“A must visit”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Take the ferry from Central Pier 6 to experience a very different side to Hong Kong. Most visitors go directly from the ferry to the bus to The Big Buddha but I advise you to stay a while in Mui Wo. It is a relaxing, beautiful and peaceful place where you can forget the hassle of central and Kowloon.

Coming off the ferry turn right past the bikes and there is the cooked food market where you can get delicious Chinese seafood, or fish and chips, or pie and chips at Ks a new 'English' restaurant.
Continue walking towards the hotel, beach and barbecue area as you may want to just sit on the beach and enjoy the views. Try to avoid coming on a Sunday as the ferry and bus prices are double and it is very busy. Visit during the week as the beaches are empty.

If you turn left coming out of the ferry you can enjoy a beer at China Bear and relax and watch the boats and working junks. There is also a 7 -11 store and Wellcome and Park and Shop supermarkets if you need water or food to barbecue. As well as China Bear there is an excellent Turkish, authentic Tibetan/Nepalese and several wonderful Italian restaurants.

Mui Wo consists of 6 villages which are really interesting to explore on foot or by bike, which you can hire. If you enjoy hiking there are several hiking trails which start in or near Mui Wo. One really nice trail is the Olympic Trail. This walk takes you through some villages and up and over the hill passing Silvermine falls and cave to Pak Mong and Tung Chung New Town. It is well sign posted to Silvermine Cave and then follow the signs to Chep Lak and Tung Chung. It is a lovely hike on a paved path and the views as you climb out of Mui Wo are beautiful. If you have lots of energy and are fit you could hike Sunset Peak or walk over the headland to Discovery Bay.

“Mui Wo - a hide away”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Mui Wo is another place to visit to experience the contrast of the tarmac and buildings of the mainland Hong Kong to a much more relaxed atmosphere. Alongside Lamma this is a place to visit on Lantau Island via a ferry. A lovely relaxed day was enjoyed by all with good food to eat.

“Nice for having delicious lunch”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Honestly I did not expect too much if this location and only went there to take the ferry back to Central. But then I strolled around a bit and finally sat down at one of those nice cooking places to have some lunch there. This was delicious, not expensive and very authentic.

Don't expect a stylish restaurant. It is more sitting on plastic chairs with the noise of the air condition behind you. But you get the nice view on the sea and the food is very fresh and tasty.

I loved it.

“A quiet place in midst of a vertical city”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

A must go place if you love peace and quiet and want to enjoy a pint of bear(yeah the pub said bear not beer) near the coast. You can then take a ferry to central from here or go back to see more of Lantau island.
